The Saint Lucia Athletics Association (SLAA) is the national governing body for athletics in Saint Lucia, inclusive of track and field, cross country running, road running and racewalking. The Athletics Association is formally known as the Saint Lucia Amateur Athletics Association. The organisation was founded in 1977 to promote Track and Field in St Lucia. In 1978 the SLAA became an affiliate member of the world governing body for athletics, then called the International Amateur Athletics Federation, and now known as the International Association of Athletics Federations.[1]

Based at Olympic House on Barnard Hill in Castries, the SLAA is a non-profit organisation, led by a President, Cornelius Breen,[2] elected at the organisation's most recent Biennial General Meeting in October 2010.[3] The SLAA is involved in many aspects of the sport at the local, national, and international level - coaching education, sports science and athlete development, youth programmes and masters (age 40+) competition. It also organises the annual National Senior Track and Field Championships, which are normally convened at the George Odlum National Stadium.
